Japan is in talks to buy exported U.S. liquefied natural gas from companies including Sempra (SRE), Dominion (D) and Freeport McMoran (FCX), Bloomberg reports, citing comments from an official at Japan's trade ministry. Japan needs LNG after last March's earthquake rendered 52 of its 54 nuclear reactors inoperable. Cheniere Energy (LNG +8.8%) surges, even though it isn't mentioned in the report.
